It's a bird...it's a plane...it's a caped tomato?!
Did you know that tomatoes are a superfood? Me neither. But I do now!
They are also good for your heart. (Which is easy to remember because red = heart. I'm wicked smaht like that.)
An article published in this month's edition of the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine demonstrates that, by way of my dumbed-down explanation, hey tomatoes are good for you!
And guess what? Canned tomatoes contain even more lycopene than raw tomatoes.
So because I care, I hereby give you a great heart-healthy pasta sauce recipe, courtesy of my Hubby. From our family to yours:
Viz Family Pasta Sauce:
One large can of Hunt’s Tomato Sauce
One large sweet onion
One large green pepper
Salt & Pepper to taste
Sugar – 1 or 2 tablespoons
Simmer in large pot. Serve with love.
And for more information about the health benefits of tomatoes, check out the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans or this interactive webinar.
